The chief purpose of using these tools will be to push information out in a format that numerous people are using. Any suggestions? Any concerns? Any information? Sign in to vote!

Posted 7/30/2012 2:51am Keith HeggartHigh School Teacher from Sydney, Australia Facilitator 2014 Hi Herb, Very important question. We've recently started setting up our own Twitter, Google + and Facebook pages for our school. It's been an interesting experience but a positive one, on the whole. The two recommendations that I would make are: 1) Keep it locked down - at least at the start. The less people you have who can post to the page, the better - that will ensure that your message remains uncluttered. 2) Expect to lose control of it - we found that as soon as parents could access our pages, they started accessing them very regularly - and asking lots and lots of questions, making lots of posts and all kinds of things.
